Re: 2 explosions at Boston Marathon, at least 6 injured.

Frank, there are times to troll, and times not to.

This is terrible. Hopefully everyone is ok.

Of course in this era, one must ask, was this planned? Is it a terrorist attack? Who did it?

Horrific news.

We'll see what caused them.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Authorities have found 2 other explosive devices in Boston.

Looking more and more like a terrorist attack....

There are more victims reported now--at least 64, but hospitals are reporting over 100.

I live about 5 miles away from the scene of the incident. Didn't go see it though, unlike the rest of the Boston-area community.

Players I support for non-tennis reasons: Murray/Ferrer/Monaco/Nadal/Isner/Li

del Potro/Nalbandian/Safin
Tsonga/Gulbis/Monfils/Dolgopolov/Verdasco
Davydenko/Kyrgios/Cilic/Muguruza

Black humour never kills anyone. Anyway since I don't have any relatives involved, I don't give a damn. No hypocrisy !

Why should an American life be more valuable than that of an Afghan or a Syrian?

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Right so Afghan and Syrian lives mean shit as well since these Americans lives don't mean shit.

I agree American lives aren't worth more than any other. But, but, but: among the two people dead is an 8-year-old-boy. Surely a child's live is worth more than a normal life--all the unlived potential, gone because the poor child went to see something exciting.

In order to be a true humanitarian you must discount the lives of anyone killed in a tragedy who happen to be privileged because if you show any signs of grief for these privileged people it automatically means you are discounting the lives of less privileged people.
